It has been 20 years since the L.A. Riots, the four days of unrest, looting and rage that paralyzed Los Angeles and sent racial shockwaves throughout the country. After decades of racial tension in South Central Los Angeles, VH1's Emmy Award-winning "VH1 Rock Docs" franchise explores the connection between the violence manifested on the streets during the 1992 riots and the rage expressed in Hip Hop by NWA, Dr. Dre, Ice T, and Ice Cube among others with VH1's "UPRISING: Hip Hop and the L.A. Riots" premiering Tuesday, May 1 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1.
